What happens if our levy is over the limit?
Any levies that result in rates over individual fund limit caps will be automatically reduced to the maximum rate. If the total PTELL-capped rate is over the limiting rate, proportional cuts will be calculated by the County Clerk’s Office and submitted to the taxing districts. The district then has the option of approving the proportional distribution or rearranging the cuts among the levied funds in a different way.
